Combo Box List Updating

Jan 22, 2009

I would like my combo box list to change base on the value of A1. That is, I have its input range being B1:F1 - "Year 1", " Year 2" etc.

Example:
-If cell A1 is the value "10" then the combo box default list item would be
"Year 1" (which is cell "B1")
-If cell A1 is the value "20" then the combo box default list item would be
"Year 2" (which is cell "C1") ETC...

Combo Box Updating Pivot Tables

Oct 16, 2008

This line of code works fine on a standard pivot table running from an excel data source, it updates Product on the change of combobox1. Easy!

Sheet4.PivotTables("PivotTable4").PivotFields("Product").CurrentPage = _
ComboBox1.Text

However! I have a Pivot table running off an OLAP data cube and the same line doesn't work!

Its errors with 1004 unable to get the pivotfields property of the pivottable class?

Sub To Be Run ONLY When A User Changes A Selection In The Combo Box

May 16, 2009

I want is to happen is that depending on which option a user selects from the drop down box (a total of 10 options), a select number of rows and columns should be hidden/visible (as you'll see from the below code..)

The other issue I'm having is that with the below code, the workbook seems to be very "busy" constantly calculating something or the other. I need the Sub to be run ONLY when a user changes a selection in the combo box, but it appears that every few seconds the workbook will be calculating something.

Finally, I introduced the GoTo Endo line after every option (1 to 10) to try and speed up the Sub when a user makes a selection, but this appears to make no differnce - it still takes forever to run the Sub.

User Form With Combo Box Dependencies

May 28, 2009

I am working on a user form which is pretty much functional, I have it set up where one combo box controls the results of the next based on user selction. I would like to take this one step further and base all the results on the selection of an option box. I have triplicated my results for the option box in the 'control' worksheet, but can not figure how to filter the results based on the inititial 'user type' selection.

Updating Through The User Form

Nov 23, 2009

I have a user form that places data in the proper place, although I donít have a way to update this data at a later time, other than going to the row and scrolling through the columns that need to be updated, of course my boss really doesnít want to look at row and columns.
What would be cool is if the user could select a row by double clicking the row number so as to highlight the row, I have a search function that they could use to find the proper row of data. Then have the data go back into the user form to either be changed or to fill in other textboxes that were left blank the first time. For instance, this example is about automobiles, the user wants to populate fields about MPG or repairs made at EOY.

Private Sub cmdAdd_Click()
Dim iRow As Long
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Worksheets("Sheet1")
'find first empty row in database
iRow = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row
'check for a Make
If Trim(Me.txtComboBox1.Value) = "" Then
Me.txtComboBox1.SetFocus
MsgBox "Please enter a Vehical"
Exit Sub..........

User Form - Delete Row On Worksheet Via Combo Box?

Jun 16, 2006

I am trying to figure out how to delete a row on a worksheet via a VBA User Form. I currently have a User Form with a Combo Box that is populated by cells in a named range ("PickCategory...") on a worksheet... I am populating thsi box using this

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
ComboBox1.List = Worksheets("data").Range("PickCategory...").Value
End Sub

First off, I want to include a lable that will display the contents of the cell to the right of the currently selected entry of the combobox on a label (or textbox). So, whatever entry you select in the combo box, the corredponding value (to the right of it on the worksheet) will appear in the text/label
box. Is there something similar to the VLOOKUP that will work in VBA?

Also, what I want to be able to do is to allow the user to select one of the entries from the combo box (which is already working) and then be able to delete the row of that entry on the worksheet. So, the user selects an entry from the combo box and then clicks a "Delete" command button to delete the row of that entry on the worksheet...

User Form - Select From Combo Box And List Box Should Populate

Jan 18, 2007

I've created a user form (click button on 'main page' to display). Combo Box called 'Last name' gets populated with all second names from the sheet 'Staff'

When a user selects a second name from the drop down list, I would like excel to automatically update the list box 'First Name'. Also, If a user changes the first name or Last Name, this should be saved

Updating Value In Table Based On User Input

Feb 10, 2010

I have one sheet to act as a splash page for user input. The second sheet stores all relevant data. My goal is for the user to input a numerical value in a cell (or input box) and then click a submit button. The code for the macro should look at a cell on sheet 1 which displays the primary key of the row in the table on sheet

2. Based on that primary key, it should look to sheet 2 and then insert the value into the table in the correct row and column. The column headings are the days of the week, and the specific day the user is concerned with is also displayed on sheet 1.

Sheet 1:

A1 = Day of the week
A2 = Unique primary key
A3 = user input value

Sheet 2:
table
Rows=primary key (001 - 999)
Columns = days of the week (Monday - Friday)

example:
user inputs '5' on sheet 1 with 'Tuesday' and '007' selected in their respective cells. I would then like 5 to be copied to B7 (row 7 for 007 and column B for Tuesday).

Runtime Error 1004 :: User Create Forumula In A Combo Box

May 7, 2007

The app. that I have been developing requires the user to create a formula in a combobox in a userform that I have setup for them.

They have a list of variables that they can choose from, which they are allowed to use in their formula creation.

A typical formula may look like this:

=SUM(25*DistFromBack) where DistFromBack = 4

I then take their formula and place it out on the sheet which returns me a value of (in this case) 100.

Now this works fine until someone wrote a formula that looked like this:

=SUM((25*DistFromBack)

Now with the double brackets at the front it creates a formula that Excel cant deal with and gives me a 'Runtime error 1004'.

I have tried to trap this error (On Error Goto .....) but unsucessful.

I would really like to have a check when the user types an erronous formula, but dont really know how to go about it.

Prevent The User From Saving The Data Input From The User Form If Any Of Those Three Fields Is Left Blank

Feb 9, 2010

I have a user form that has a combo box "City" two text boxes one called "Flight" and the other "Date". What I'm trying to do is to prevent the user from saving the data input from the user form if any of those three fields is left blank. The code that I have so far checks all of the required fields, if any are left blank a message notifys which field(s) is left blank and return the focus back to that field. But the rest of code also fires.

What I really need is either to stop the code if any fields are blank and return the focus back to the blank field, the user completes the field(s) and clicks the save again, or better yet, pause the code until all the required fields are completed and then complete the save. (There is actually another 200+ lines of code in this sub, but I deleted it to keep the post a little shorter.)

Pivot Table Fields Expands Automatically When Updating Data (only Where Data Has Been Changed)

Jan 11, 2013

I have created a pivot table that is connected to an input sheet with data. The input sheet retrieves data automatically from a external source through an add-in to Excel. When updating data the fields expands, but only for the items which have been changed. I want the table to be updated automatically, but not the fields expand automatically. Is there any pivot options to prevent this problem?

It should be mentioned that the pivot table is not directly connected to the input sheet (which is updated from the external source), but from a "help-sheet" reflecting the input sheet with some additional columns. I use conditional formatting and name range in the pivot.

Linking Data In A Vba Combo Box

Apr 18, 2007

I have created a form that pops up when I open a new template. In that form I have inserted a combo box that I want to be able to select data from a separate spreadsheet that is on our server. What code do I need to write to link this data to my combo box. Below is what I have written.

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()

'Add list entries to combobox. The value of each
'entry matches the corresponding ListIndex value
'in the combo box.

cbSiteAddress.AddItem ("P:AccountsBilling Schedule.xls'MASTER SCHEDULE'!A5:A103")

'Use drop-down list
cbSiteAddress.Style = fmStyleDropDownList

'Combo box values are ListIndex values
cbSiteAddress.BoundColumn = 0

'Set combo box to first entry
cbSiteAddress.ListIndex = 0

End Sub

Source Data For Combo Boxes

Nov 2, 2009

I'm trying to create a workbook for tracking costs and change orders for multiple subcontractors. My main question is about combo boxes. I would like to create a master list of subcontractors on The masterlists tab of the attached workbook. I would like to use this masterlist as the data source for a combo box I'm going to use to replace the subcontractor txtbox on the SubCoEntryFrm. I figured getting away from a user typing something in would benefit me if I wanted to use that subcontractor name field to analyze data.

Filling A Combo Box With Data From A Worksheet

Nov 21, 2006

I'm attempting to make a simple userform that inputs data onto an existing worksheet. I have the userform but would like to use a combo box to choose a "category" item of data, however I dont know what the categories are! I would like the combo box to, somehow, look at the spreadsheet and read off the already entered categories and offer those as choices.

A picture is worth a thousand words:

Is there a simple way to fill the combo box (using the form initialize I assume) with the existing categories?

Combo Box And Numeric Data Validation

Jul 13, 2006

I have a combo box where I select "Income" or "Expense". In relation to that, In the next column called "Category", I use the offset formula in "Validation". Depending on whether I choose Income or Expense, I will get different dropdown options for "Category". What I want to do is if I choose Expense, in the column named "Amount" beside category, I want to have it so that it places the numbers in brackets or simply a negative sign. Just as reference, I use the SUM function to total up the numbers at the bottom of the sheet.

I have attached a sample copy "Data Validation Test"

Vary Source Data Via Combo Box

Feb 23, 2007

I'm trying to amend a chart via combo box. Cell C15 returns a dynamic named range, based on a vlookup.

My problem is in having the code pick up the value that C15 returns, rather than the formula in it.

Set rng = Sheets("Chart lookup").Range("C15")

ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=rng, _
PlotBy:=xlColumns

Updating A List Of Data

Jan 9, 2009

I have a workbook. I want to write a macro that takes cells A16:G16 on sheet "Calc" and to update the list on the sheet "POSITIONS". This is done by using the cell A16 (on "Calc") and looking up the "A" column on sheet "POSITIONS" for a match, then replacing the new values from the "Calc" on the "POSITIONS" sheet. If no match is found I would like to add the new data at the bottom of the sheet. The maxium number of entries (rows) on sheet "POSITIONS" will be 300.

UPDATING IMPORTED DATA

Jan 9, 2006

I am working with Microsoft Excel 2003. I am trying to import(or something
like it) from worksheet (A) to worksheet (B). Worksheet A is a spreadsheet
that I have saved to keep the same row names, etc. but the information within
the named cells is forever changing. I also save the information from
worksheet A, but have another copy that when I open, it always opens without
any changed data in it. MY question/problem is that I need to import the
data from A to B, and every time that A changes, I need B to automatically
update the data and continuously add to the spreadsheet I have made up for B.
I can NOT have A overwrite any data that I have already put into B.

Updating Data In 1 Column From Another

Jun 27, 2008

I need a formula that let me change the value in column B with the value from column D. But to do the change I have to check that the value in column C is equal to the value in column A. If a value from column A is not present in column C (like 1002 in the example), the value in column B wont change. The values in columns A and C are alphanumeric, the values in columns B and D are numeric.

For example:

Column A Column B Column C Column D

1001 2 1001 4
1002 1 1003 5
1003 0 1004 1
1004 2



The columns A and B should end like this (Changed):

1001 4
1002 1
1003 5
1004 1

Updating Columns With New Data

Jan 20, 2009

I'm using Vista with Excel 2007. I have a master spreadhseet populated with a number of columns, but the important ones are column a (item code) and column q (foreign pricing).
I have received the new pricing from our Danish supplier and now need to update my master spreadhseet. The spreadsheet has only column a (item code) and column b (new pricing).
I need to get the pricimng in the new spreadhseet from column b to column q in the master spreadsheet whilst making sure that the item codes match. Note that there are more item codes in the new price list than in the master spreadsheet.
I've bought an Excel book with 1022 pages but still can't figure this out - it must be so simple but I'm missing something.

Using Data Validation To Make My Combo Box As It Looks Cleaner

Jun 14, 2007

A row of say 20 cells, the first cell has 4 options in a combo (using data validation to make my combo box as it looks cleaner). Once the first cells value has been selected I want to populate the values of cells 2-20 based on which of the 4 options was selected in cell 1. Cells 2-20 will be a drop down of 7 options (so cell 1 selects the default selection in the other combo boxes). Also, for combo boxes 2-20 I want to change the cell background based on which option is selected.

How difficult will this be to program in Excel? Can someone help me out or point me in the right direction to find some good tutorials to help with this. (I do have some experience with Word VBA but I am by no means an expert with it, but I do program in other languages)
